They say

A race inspired ski to carve your way through every slope with force

We say

The first overriding impression with the Force 11 is the exceptionally smooth ride, which is matched up to a heavy, strong construction. It’s a ski that feels really at home for blasting through chopped up conditions, where it batters anything in its way into submission. That strong construction allows it to hold a strong edge on piste, feeling super powerful for long drawn out arcs and medium radius turns. In shorter turns that width and heavy duty build make it feel less nimble. Essentially this is a powerful ski that suits skiers who love making bigger turns in all conditions

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Very smooth and powerful. A little sluggish at slow speeds, but loads of life and grip at high speeds
Mark Jones
Very grippy, love the strong feeling underfoot, super smooth and powerful, at its best in longer, faster arcs
